“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose
one thought over another” ~ William James

I am an experienced and skilled therapist using a range of specialised therapies including various Massage Styles, Analytical Hypnotherapy, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Listening and Sensible Psychology to not only treat your symptoms but to get to the root cause of your problem. I work with you to design a treatment that is right for your individual needs.

When stress is managed well, it enables you to become more productive, creative and relaxed. Stress management is not about avoiding challenges and responsibilities — it’s about being able to take them on and tackle them calmly and effectively and be able to relax and have fun too!

Using techniques from hypnotherapy and massage, I can help you to release the negative effects of stress you are already feeling and teach you techniques that you can use every day to enable you to cope with life’s stressors and deal effectively with them. This way you will reduce — or you may even remove — the negative impact of stress as you become more resilient to it.

Born and bred in Chesterfield, I re-trained as a therapist in Australia in 2006 with Diplomas in Remedial Massage,  Integrated Body Therapies, and Aromatherapy.

In 2016, I completed a Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy and in 2017 I completed my training to become a listening volunteer for the Samaritans. In 2018 I trained to become a bereavement volunteer with Sheffield Cruse and grew a beard.
